10. The 16:8

The diet for people who love to eat. Interested? Thought so. Like its sister diet, the 5:2, this one’s a numbers game. You have an eight-hour window during which you can eat, then you fast for 16 hours.

Typical meal: Whatever you fancy. As long as it’s within your window.

What the diet advocate says: According to David Zinczenko, author of The 8-hour Diet, eating all your meals within a set window is the key to burning fat. ‘By carving out an eight-hour window in which to eat to your heart's content, you'll burn your body's fat stores effortlessly. The science is actually simple: for several years, researchers have been producing remarkable weight loss results in people using "intermittent fasting". In this case, fasting is about eating whatever you want, but staying within a sensible eight-hour window. This gives your body the chance to burn away your fat stores for the energy it needs.’

What the expert says: ‘This is based on the same principle as 5:2, but the fact that it doesn’t involve any calorie counting or dietary restriction is a bonus. There may be some benefits to IF in relation to healthy ageing, but again, more research is needed.’

Verdict: An early afternoon brunch and a late dinner – aka Saturday. We’re onto a winner here.
